Photos by Chris Cozzone

It’s been sixteen long months since Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has stepped into the ring.

Considering the age difference, Mayweather is confident that his experience and overall skill will be the difference maker on Saturday night. That little concept called ring rust is the furthest thing from his mind. (more…)

Some journeys are best mapped by clarifying the goal, then working backwards, and Brookins believes he has done just that . . . Click here for more by Jordan Newmark, UFC.com
